Its been a long week and its only Tuesday! I have been sick with the flue and feeling like I was hit by a truck. Then it backed over me to make sure I was finished!! :( The whole household has been under the weather.

I did manage to finish this one up for a local guy. and Im quite pleased with the knife.

Its sporting a 4 1/2 inch blade made from 14-4 stainless steel RC 60 With some of Craig's killer birch burl. This one also comes with a fire steel that has matching burl wood handle and lanyard tube that runs right through the rod.

I countoured the handle on this to feel like a extension of your hand.

Thanks for looking. and as always comment and or critiques welcomed!

tk, customer requested it. Has anyone tested this material as a kitchen knife yet? It seems like it may make a good cutter?

I hope you all feel better, Randy. Nice looking knife. Why 14-4?

That knife looks like it would be right at home in the great outdoors. Nice job man. Also, is that some jimping I see on the upper slope of the butt (no innuendo)?

Thanks guys. This one is not my normal style cutter. But it sure is a great functional design.. And was requested by a local man who dropped by the shop for a visit after finding me on Google. :)

The jimping actually is my HHH Makers mark for this knife. I had done this on a couple other knives and he thought it would look cool if I could add it to his blade. Rather then a touch mark or etched logo. Heres a better picture of it.

Normally I have it just in front of the handle on the spine on some of my hunting knives.

Thanks again for the comments and checking out the thread!

I noticed the logo filework on something else you did. It's genius.

Hey, has making kitchen knives effected the way you grind the blades on your bushcrafters/hunters/fighters?

Wow. Logo jimping! +1 on that being genius.

Thanks man. I think your giving me way more credit then is deserved.. But I will agree its cool!! and looks good without distracting or taking away from the look and flow of a knife.. Some tang marks and or stamps to me really mess up the visual flow of a knife!!
